    Blank Help


    looking at a few blanks for a build i plan on starting soon.

    the blank needs to be able to cast 1/8th ounce jigheads a good distance and be in the realm of 6-15lb, will be casting 1/8 and 1/6th the most but sometimes up to say 3/8th or 1/2ounce

    using it for snapper on plastics over here in brisbane matched to a shimano biomaster 2008 C3000. running 20lb braid and leaders ranging from 10lb to 30lb

    so far ive got

    G-Loomis P902-GL3 (rated to 1/4 as min cast weight so a bit worried on casting 1/8th ounce)

    G-Loomis SJ843-GL3

    GUSA B70M

    which in your opinion would be best suited to the job?

    Go the GUSA B70M. I recently built a B65XH and absolutely love it. Great blank.

    Where can you buy the Graphite USA blanks? I can't find anyone in Sydney who has them.

    I'm also interested in the GUSA B70M - sounds like what I'm looking for re an SP snapper rod.

    Any advice appreciated.
